Thanksgiving Dinner in a Box - Nov 25 or Nov 26 -  North County Lifeline - Vista

The Lifeline Program promotes self-sufficiency and supports individuals and families to strive towards economic stability. The meals will be provided to the families who are in the Lifeline program.

Project: Bless a family and give them a chance to celebrate one of the most cherished holidays that many of us take for granted.  Provide them with the groceries to make Thanksgiving Dinner a reality (turkey and all the sides).  Fresh items are preferred as much as possible, but non-perishables will work as well.

Cost:  Cost of the groceries.  Use the suggested list below to provide a holiday dinner.

What size family?  Choose a family of 4, 5 or 6 upon registration.

Groups or Individuals:  This project is great for either group or individuals.  If you’re an individual, you might grab your friends or family to help with the prep and expense of the meal.

Deliver: Monday Nov. 25th or Tuesday Nov. 26th to the North County Lifeline Offices. Once the meal is delivered, the social workers will deliver the meal to the client.

Pack:  Package the dinner in boxes or reusable grocery bags to make it easier for transport.
